Help for typhoon victims

By Administrator |

One month after the devastating typhoon Morakot hit in Taiwan, Nuance-Watson (HK) has completed a two-week in-store charity collection within its stores in Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) raising HK$60,000 ($7,741) in support of the

victims from donation boxes.

From August 26 to September 8, Nuance-Watson placed 'WE SUPPORT' donation boxes across its major points of sale at HKIA, as well as in its staff room and back offices to raise money, inviting both international customers and its staff to make contributions to help the typhoon relief and rehabilitation works in Taiwan.

The total raised was topped up by an additional sum donated by Nuance-Watson (HK) with the money bound for use by the Hong Kong Red Cross to help the victims and their families rebuild their lives.

On August 7, typhoon Morakot hard hit Taiwan, causing widespread damages in the eastern and southern regions. The storm triggered the worst flooding in Taiwan in the past 50 years.

Nuance-Watson Regional Managing Director Alessandra Piovesana sent her condolences to the victims and their families and also extended her 'heartfelt appreciation' to the customers and Nuance-Watson staff members for their generous donations, in the belief that every dollar will help the survivors of this disaster.
